"Jericho" as written by and Michael Small Liam Howlett....
Forget the lights
Forget the sounds
You no longer need me round
Lost my patience
Lost my pride
The story of my life
Innocence is no way to hide
Forget the light
Forget the sound
Why do you have to drag me down
Men of night, In disguise
Slay this barren child
Sadness is your only friend

"Please forgive me
I didn't mean to
play with your emotions
Tear apart your passions
Please forgive me
I didn't mean to
Hurt you with false meanings
Hurt you with false feelings"

Is what you see
Is what you get
Overhearing distant sounds
Is what you wish
Is what you hope
Given both ends of the rope
Both ends of the rope?

When you turn against the system
and the rules that are taught
The true unconscious law
an action without thought

To free yourself forever from the shackles and the chains
Of any kind of hell
You can call this need by any other name

When you stay held down for most of your life
It's not hard to find a cause
It's the catalyst behind the knife... the knife!

Gonna turn the tide against you
Gonna make this private revolution
Gonna smash the gates and march right through
Gonna tear apart this institution
I'm coming down to find you
Gonna make this private revolution
Better keep this faith behind you
Gonna lead the way to new solutions.

Jericho, I'll bring those walls right down on you!
Jericho, I'll bring those walls right down on you!

Gonna turn the tide against you
Gonna make this private revolution
Gonna smash the gates and march right through
Gonna make this private revolution

Jericho, I'll bring those walls right down on you!
Jericho, I'll bring those walls right down on you!
